Son Sees Father on TV, The Father They Cremated Five Years Ago

What would you do if you spotted your father on a current events program; the father you cremated five years ago! As incredible as this sounds, it happened to a British man who's father disappeared in 2000 and who's body was thought discovered in 2003. It turns out that the father had lost his memory and was being cared for under a different name given to him by the care facility since they had no way of identifying him. The two have since been reunited.,2933,416485,00.html#

"Renehan’s father, John Delaney, disappeared in 2000, the Daily Mail reported. When police found a decomposed body in April 2003, wearing similar clothes and with similar wounds to Delaney, they declared it was him.

A coroner confirmed the police findings and Renehan paid for a cremation and wake, the Mail reported. He is now demanding an apology from police for the trauma he suffered believing his dad was dead.

Turns out 71-year-old Delaney had been in a care facility since 2000, after suffering a head injury and memory loss, the Mail reported. Unable to give any clues as to his identity, Delaney was given the name David Harrison and placed in a home.
